Hi,

Has anyone got one of these that can give me some advice on Canyon Aeroad sizing? I've studied the geometry but there's nothing like sitting on the bike in the size you think you need set up to your measurements to know you've made the right choice - not easy with internet order only. I'm currently riding a 56cm Scott Addict with a 110mm stem (Scott call this a large) with 2 cm of spacers giving me an 8cm drop and know the Addict comes up a bit bigger than the Canyon. I'm 182 cm (fraction under 6ft) and without going into more detail on exact set up can someone give me a steer on sizing? I can't work out if i'd be better off with a 56 (medium according to Canyon) or 58 in the Canyon. I would like to keep the same drop and prefer to avoid a stack of spacers under the stem and a mile of seat post on show, that said if I go for the larger size I don't like the front end handling on anything shorter than a 100m stem. Sorry if vague but I'm hoping someone out there may have been though a similar dilemma!

Cheers

Sounds like the wrong bike for you. I routinely look at geo charts and if I can't get a 120mm stem with less than 2cm spacers I pass. The best frame in the world isn't worth shoehorning to get a proper fit.

Canyon Aeroad in Size M (56) has about the same reach and 14mm less stack. The standard headset has a top cap of 16mm plus you get 15mm of spacers, so you end up with a position 3 mm lower than on the scott. You'll hardly notice that and the bike will look fine.

Hey Aris, that's not my bike, just a picture to show what an Aeroad looks like with the standard set of spacers.

I think that bike might not have all of the 15mm of spacers. (Not sure, I can be wrong)

This one has. The shot was taken right after unpacking.

As for sizing, I'm 183cm, and would have liked to buy an Aeroad, but M's headtube is too small, L's top tube is too long. Not for me.

To be honest the M was little big for my size and the S was to small.

Finally I decided to go for the M size and put an 11cm/-8deg. stem instead of 12cm/-6deg. that I've been using till now.
Also I've removed the 15mm spacers which came with.
I was asking about the setback to get an idea about the setting of other owners of the bike. Personally according my Torso length I found the 15mm set back of the seat post to be the most suitable for my training.

I'll post photos later in the afternoon to see how it turned out the hall set up and tell me what you think.
